Re: Narrow Dia Carbon boom

Just buy a 140 and a 150 boom.

The good slim booms are still very stiff set with 40cm extension.

Re: What kit are you flying on?

Interesting they have made it a 'freestyle' board plan shape. The plan shape of the board seems largely irrelevant once on the foil. yes the plan shape doesn't make a huge difference apart from partly dictating where you can put your feet. So you could have a wide board with a square tail but stand...

Re: What kit are you flying on?

There are a few tuttle head foils eg the afs surf

Best foil? - Depends if you want to get into freeride type foiling or surf style foiling.

Then there is cost. For value the pryde foils are hard to beat. the large wing foils are getting popular for ease of learning, slingshot, afs f800 wing etc.

Re: Water proof radio or phone for safety

Have a look at the RYA Safetrx app. I sail on my own most of the time and I just try to be sensible plus I use what I think are the very strongest mast base, extensions, booms etc. I am very wary when people start asking about safety equipment. I feel if you think you need it then you should probabl...

Re: What kit are you flying on?

Personally with my foils a 7.5 but I could use a 6.5. Last week I was in Wales foiling on the open coast and what a nice change to have a steady wind, everything was much easier. One session was 10 kts steady. Here sometimes 10 kts would = 6 to 15 kts. But that is the thing about foiling, I find it ...

Re: What kit are you flying on?

The key thing is to have a big foil and small sail. Which makes everything easier. I don't think you can apply that to all situations. I do a lot of foiling in very gusty conditions where a larger sail gives a more reliable steady pull to balance against. In such conditions a small sail especially ...

Re: Replacement boom clamp

Yes, I doubt a streamline front would fit. I think chinook used to do a front end of a similar shape. It is really a case of taking the boom to your local shop and seeing if they have something lying around that would fit. I have a box of old boom heads but without the boom there is no way of knowin...

Re: What kit are you flying on?

So, trying to decipher this thread but it becomes a very technical discussion. For an average ability rider and sea conditions, what kind of free ride performance are you all experiencing? I’m interested to see if a foil board with a small rig is going to offer substantial return, eg fly in 5 knots...

Re: Foiling stance - rig geometry... Advice pls

I use lines 4" shorter than on my wave boards (28") and I have my boom just 1" higher. I also have the lines a fraction forward and I hold the boom more forward than normal. If it get windy and I am over powered my hands go much further forward on the boom. It makes it easier to push down through th...
